A smattering of Crocus will round off this report, although Patrick will tell me off for not having taken any photos of the Lachenalia  :-X

Crocus chrysanthus
Crocus rujanensis (which appears to be from Archibold seed)
Crocus sieberi 'Albus'
Crocus baytopiorum

Thanks for your report Matt, is it the big rock garden that is being re-vamped or the crevice  please? Hoping to combine a visit to Wisley and to the Savill Gardens in Windsor sometime this Spring.

Hi David, it's the big rock garden undergoing a revamp. They say it should be complete by March 2015. The crevice is looking rather good, even at this time of year.
